The Chandra X-ray image of the galaxy cluster MACSJ1423 shows hot gas displayed in red. The mass of the hot gas is about 6 times greater than the mass of all the billions of stars in all of the galaxies in the cluster. This galaxy cluster has a redshift of 0.54, at a distance corresponding to a light travel time of 5.4 billion years. Scale:

The bluish band seen running from the upper-left to the lower-right of the image is due to light from stars in the M82 galaxy, which is about 12 million light years from Earth. The red filamentary features extending perpendicular to the galaxy are due to ionized hydrogen gas emitting its characteristic red light (the so-called "H alpha" line) at a wavelength of 6563 Angstroms.

Material from the large blue companion star is seen being pulled toward the black hole by its powerful gravity. A disk of this material (orange) is swept into orbit around the black hole, fed by winds flowing out from the star. This wind is disrupted by the black hole, causing turbulence and ripples beyond the disk. (Credit: NASA/CXC/M.Weiss)

This Chandra image taken in March 2002 shows the black hole XTE J1550-564 (center), the approaching eastern jet, and the receding western jet (right). In four years the jets moved about two light years from the black hole. The apparent large size of the source of X-rays from the vicinity of the black hole is an instrumental artifact due to the brightness of the source. The size of the source is consistent with a point-like object. Scale:

Most of the X-ray halo emanates from the central disk of the galaxy, which is inclined at an angle of 60 degrees to Earth. This means that the northern lobe of X-ray emission from NGC 1569 is largely blocked from Chandra's view, while the southern lobe appears to be more prominent. (Credit: NASA/CXC/M.Weiss)

Gamma-ray bursts are common, yet random, and fleeting events that have mystified astronomers since their discovery in the late 1960s. Many scientists say longer bursts (more than four seconds in duration) are caused by massive star explosions; shorter bursts (less than two seconds in duration) are caused by mergers of binary systems with black holes or neutron stars. While uncertainty remains, most scientists say in either scenario a new black hole is born. (Illustration: NASA/D.Berry)

The Chandra observation of the Arches shows an envelope of 60 million degree gas around the star cluster. This compact cluster is composed of hot, massive stars that live short, furious lives lasting only a few million years. During this period, gas evaporates from these stars in the form of intense stellar winds. The envelope of hot gas observed by Chandra is thought to be due to collisions of the winds from numerous stars. (Credit: NASA/CXC/Northwestern/F.Zadeh et al.)

Chandra X-ray images of Supernova 1987A reveal a ring of multimillion-degree gas produced by the collision of an outward-moving supernova shock wave with a ring of cool circumstellar gas. The full field optical image (lower right), taken by the Hubble Space Telescope [ http://hubblesite.org/newscenter/newsdesk/archive/releases/2004/09/ ], shows a ring of bright spots that are also caused by the shock wave hitting the cool gas.

This version of Chandra's observation of M17 has been processed to emphasize the diffuse emission in the cluster. In this image, the point sources have been removed and then the pixels have been slightly blurred, or smoothed, together. Red represents lower energy X-rays (0.5-2 keV) and blue shows a higher range of X-rays (2-7 keV). Scale:

Astronomers have used data from Chandra to make the first detailed study of the behavior of high-energy particles around a fast moving pulsar. The results show a shock wave created as a pulsar plows supersonically through interstellar space. These results will provide insight into theories for the production of powerful winds of matter and antimatter by pulsars. Scale:

This Chandra X-ray image reveals a barrel-shaped supernova remnant around a glowing bar of intense X-radiation. These X-rays are produced by jets of 15 million degree Celsius gas that is rich in iron and nickel. These features indicate that W49B was produced when the core of a rapidly-rotating massive star collapsed to form a black hole, triggering the ejection of high-energy jets of material. Scale:

On July 14, 2000 the Chandra X-ray Observatory imaged the comet repeatedly for a total of 2 1/2 hours and detected X-rays from oxygen and nitrogen ions. The details of the X-ray emission, as recorded on ACIS, show that the X-rays are produced by collisions of ions racing away from the Sun (solar wind) with gas in the comet.

Comet LINEAR was discovered on September 27, 1999. Its closest approach to Earth occurred July 23, 2000 at a distance of 35 million miles. Its closest approach to the Sun occurred July 26, 2000 at a distance of 71 million miles. LINEAR is an acronym meaning Lincoln Near Earth Asteroid Research. (Credit: Larry Koehn)

This series of illustrations shows a yellow star that travels too close to a giant black hole in the center of the galaxy RX J1242-11. As it nears, the star is stretched by tidal forces from the black hole and is quickly torn apart. Most of the yellow gaseous debris from the star escapes the black hole in parabolic orbits. However, a small amount of material is captured by the black hole and then forms a rotating disk of gas. X-rays are emitted as the gas in the disk is heated (as shown by the...
